Nowadays, customers crave emotional connection and authenticity from brands. Therefore, every year we see an increase in representation and inclusion among brand campaigns for special days like Mother’s Day.

The idealized image of all stages of being a mother is now an obsolete approach to portray. This year we see more and more companies showcasing the reality of motherhood and the beauty of diversity among mothers around the world. Moreover, we see more inclusive messages for people who may not celebrate this day, or see it in a different light.

These days, mothers feel more empowered to expose their unspoken experiences with motherhood, challenge the commonly minimized challenges of being a mother, demand societal change, share their learning outcomes on stigmatized topics, and own their postpartum bodies with confidence. Hence, your campaigns should definitely align with that!

We present to you the best Mother’s Day campaigns of 2023!

Scroll down here to check the best Mother’s day campaign of 2022.

Pandora – To All The Mums

“A mother’s love comes in so many forms. It’s not always about biology and it’s not always simple – but it is a pure, unconditional, indescribable connection.”

Orangetheory – Mother’s Other Day

After their U.S consumer study found that 54% of moms believe Mother’s Day is more stressful than an average Sunday, and 82% of moms shared that they’d enjoy their Mother’s Day celebration more if they had the next day for themselves, fitness brand Orangetheory took matters on their own hands.

They decided to name May 15th: Mother’s Other Day, and offer moms and mother figures a free class. So moms could spend at least 60 minutes of their day by and for themselves!
